Saying Goodbye | {my life}

Last week, family, friends and the community came together to pay their respects to Lodi Fire Capt. Joe Hansen.

I knew him through working at the local newspaper. He was a giant of a man. He was kind and had an great laugh.

He reminded me of Tom Selleck, and that’s what I called him.

Thursday, we all said goodbye.

Here are a few photos I found looking back.

The Pink October fashion show. He was an escort last year. He escorted his wife, Natalie.

Rest in peace, Joe. We will miss you dearly.
